Days like these

Days where we:

Answer Ben’s questions about astronomy, and as a result figure out how far it is to the nearest star beyond the sun. (And how long it would take to get there. We won’t be visiting anytime soon, is the general answer.)

Go “treasure hunting” in the valley next to my parent’s house, specifically at a site where in the early part of the 20th century, a house once stood.

Realize that we have only one more full day here before heading back to New York. We are both happy and sad.

Appreciate the atmosphere and ice cream of Zaharakos ice cream parlor in downtown Columbus IN.

Retell the story of our scratch off lottery win to just one more person. (Ben scratched off a $600 win. He and Maya now have spending money for many months to come.)

Marvel at the little things.
